Denver Nuggets starting forward Will Barton was carted off during Saturday’s game with a right hip injury.
Barton left in the third quarter of Denver’s 119-91 rout over the Phoenix Suns when he suffered the injury scoring on a reverse layup. The seven-year veteran said after the game he heard something pop.
He’s scheduled for an MRI on Sunday.
Barton, who signed a four-year contract extension in the offseason, finished the game with 14 points, five rebounds and four assists in 19 minutes.
